I had a hard time coming up with the word TrumpWar. What was needed was a word that described Trump's unique basic root policy, which was at the root of all other lesser policies, including his domestic, military and foreign policies. EcoWar, for Economic-War didn't quite hit it, and neither die BusWar, for Business-War. TrumpWar won out, because it is a super policy that is absolutely unique to Donald J. Trump, and it encompasses all of Trump's other Presidential policies.
What TrumpWar is, as being implemented by President Trump, is a combination of Adam Smith's 1776 publication of The Wealth Of Nations, and, Thomas Jefferson's and 56 signer's 1776 publication of the American Declaration of Independence.
President Trump today is putting those two documents into practice.
The older name for it, of course, is Capitalism. What was old is new again.
Capitalism wasn't invented in 1776; it began with the fall of man in the Garden of Eden. It's a natural phenomenon. Adam Smith only described it; the American Declaration proclaimed it as a right of man, and the American Constitution protected it in national law. And then it really took off, fueled by a liberated, self-reliant, wealth-producing American citizenry.
So what happened?
Marxism had been progressively smothering Capitalism in America since Teddy Roosevelt, at least. And that means it was suppressing in law and de-emphasizing in the public mind the vital importance of the words in the Declaration and the Constitution. To the point of actually demonizing Capitalism and promoting Marxism-Socialism in the mind of the American public and world public, throughout Western Civilization.
With the failure of the 1848 publication of Marx and Engle's Communist Manifesto and the abject failures of the resultant 1848 "Springtime of Revolutions" all across the European nations, a whole lot of new Marxists began to see Marx's "Class War" to be a nothing more than a figment of Marx's wild imagination. There simply wasn't enough "Class Struggle" going on out there to feed any successful world-wide global "Revolution".
It became clear to a lot of Marxist tyrant-wannabes that the only way for Marxism to advance was militarily through war, and war could only be waged between nations that had armies; therefore, before it could go global, Marxism had to take over nations, with which to wage war against Capitalist nations, and eventually conquer them all.
Enter, National Socialism, aka Fascism and Nazism. Today nobody thinks of them as Marxist or even as Socialist, but that is what they are. In World War II, Russian Communism, German Nazism and Italian Fascism were all rooted in Marx's original anti-Capitalism, anti-class structure and anti-existing social institution Manifesto. The National Socialists had simply determined that world-wide revolution - Communism - was impossible to get off the ground, and so they opted for the slower National takeover approach.
Just because Hitler violated his mutual non-aggression pact with Stalin and went to war against Russia did not and does not mean that Communism and Nazism were not and are not both Marxist and anti-Capitalist and Leftist.
The entire world of Marxism and Socialism is anti-Capitalist. To the degree that any nation is Socialist, to that same degree is it, as it must be, anti-Capitalist. America stands alone as a bastion of Capitalism, even after the muti-generational onslaught of Cultural Marxism and Marxocrat Partyism. We are still the most Capitalist nation on earth, with no other nation even close.
And that is what President Trump not only capitalized on, but enhanced, fed and strengthened. All of his policies that cut taxes on our personal income and cut strangling regulations keeping us from producing goods and services are freeing and invigorating of the natural power of Capitalism.
Trump is making America great again by simply cooperating with nature. Capitalism simply describes man's natural impulse to improve; to do better. Trump is no politician, but he is beating every politician in sight and he is beating them even in their own rigged game.
Is he a genius, or is he just an actual real live Capitalist? You tell me.
What we are privileged to be witnessing today is a convergence of the brilliant American founding and a brilliant operator of Capitalism.
He's a Capitalist, pure and simple.
Not just a Capitalist, but a people-person, and perhaps primarily a people-person. He connects with us because he is one of us, and not one of them; the elitists of society, the highfalutin leaders of academia, show biz, celebrity and politics, who all lean hard Left, but aren't smart enough, individually or collectively, to even begin to understand Trump, or us, or the very special uniqueness of America as designed.
America was designed to be great; Trump is making her great again.
The only thing Truth has going for Him in this world is us.
The restoration of Truth = Reality in the hearts and minds of men is now totally dependent upon you and me; if we don't do it, it won't get done.
Print, sign and send The Letter, and make our Church Catholic again.
Get behind President Trump, and make America Constitutional again.
With fear and trembling, work out your salvation--Phil 2:12
Seek the Truth; Find the Way; Live the Life.
Please God, and Live Forever.

"Marxism had been progressively smothering Capitalism in America since Teddy Roosevelt, at least."
You nailed it, but indirectly. Around the time of Teddy's rise in politics was the unconstitutional enactment of debt-based currency known as the The Federal Reserve Act. Its bank is not federal and there are no reserves. With it there can be only fraudulent, deceptive free enterprise between the citizens, while actual capital can flow by design only to those who own the bamk and print the currency. Its perpetrators most likely financed Teddy's and Woodrow's political careers.
Note: The Federal Reserve Bank has refused to open its books to a government audit.

Right you are, but you have the dates wrong. The Federal Reserve Act of 1913 was signed into law by the infamous Woodrow Wilson, President from 1913 to 1921. Teddy was President from 1901 to 1909. President Teddy Roosevelt was the first of many who grew the government and government power over the people, at the expense of citizen liberty and private property. His enactment of the National Park system is today universally lauded and celebrated, but it overlooks the fact that citizen property was taken and citizens were forced against their will to move off of their own land, because, in Teddy's view, it looked nice, and it would look even nicer without them being there.
This began the now prevailing view that the federal government, more than the occupants of land, could and would do more to safe-keep and preserve the land than the people who lived there. It was also the beginning of the promises of "a pot on every stove", "a chicken in every pot", "a horse in every barn" and other such political promises that no government could possibly keep, but were to become common.
Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport.
Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input.
Get in the fight! Engage!
Seek the Truth; find the Way; live the Life; please God, and live forever.

Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and
broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in
thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life:
and few there are that find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in
the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Jesus Christ; Matt 7:13-15
"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.—Winston Churchill
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.—Ayn Rand
